"The Australasian Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine has produced these guidelines to facilitate effective and improved management, in primary care settings, of sexually transmitted infections among gay and other homosexually active men, sex workers, people who inject drugs, and young people (under 25). The first three population groups reflect the priorities outlined in the National HIV/AIDS Strategy 1999-2000 to 2003-2004. Young people have been included given the incidence and prevalence of STIs amongst this population group. People in custodial settings and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people do not fall within the scope of the guidelines. Sexual health issues for indigenous people are being addressed through the National Indigenous Australians’ Sexual Health Strategy.

"The guidelines are intended for use by general practitioners, nurses and other health professionals working in the sexual health field."
